John Basilone sells War Bonds
From awesomestories.com
This historical footage, from the National Archives, depicts Sgt. John Basilone with New York City Mayor Fiorello La Guardia.  In the days before television, people saw newsreels (and war updates) at movie theaters.  In this clip, Basilone and La Guardia are creating such a piece.
 
Always hesitant to talk about himself, Basilone shares the credit of his heroic deeds at Guadalcanal (which won him a Medal of Honor) with other Marines.  Move the video forward, to 0:44, 2:11 and 2:40, to see close-ups of him.
 
The clip includes several "takes."  This was often necessary in the days before politicians relied on teleprompters to help them "get it right the first time." (03:42)

Archdukes, Cynicism, and World War I: Crash Course World History #36
From YouTube, produced by crashcourse
In which John Green teaches you about the war that was supposed to end all wars. Instead, it solved nothing and set the stage for the world to be back at war just a couple of decades later. As an added bonus, World War I changed the way people look at the world, and normalized cynicism and irony. John will teach you how the assassination of an Austrian Archduke kicked off a new kind of war that involved more nations and more people than any war that came before. New technology like machine guns, airplanes, tanks, and poison gas made the killing more efficient than ever. Trench warfare and modern weapons led to battles in which tens of thousands of soldiers were killed in a day, with no ground gained for either side. World War I washed away the last vestiges of 19th century Romanticism and paved the way for the 20th century modernism that we all know and find to be cold and off-putting. While there may not be much upside to WWI, at least it inspired George M. Cohan to write the awesome song, "Over There." (11:45)

The Aftermath of World War II
From hippocampus.org, produced by University of California
The Grand Alliance was a military success—Germany and Japan were defeated by the fall of 1945. However, despite the agreement to organize the United Nations, nothing close to a lasting ideological or political alliance was formed among the Allies during the Second World War. There were simply too many irreconcilable differences between them, exacerbated by a traditional distrust that commenced with the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917.
Actions taken by the Allied powers during the war likewise increased tensions within the Grand Alliance.

Wartime Propaganda
From hippocampus.org, produced by University of California
The federal government did not repeat the mistakes of the First World War, when doughboys marched off to fight "the war to end all wars." During the earlier conflict, the government entered into a high-powered propaganda campaign that proclaimed America was striving "to make the world safe for democracy." George Creel headed the Committee on Public Information, which turned out crude propaganda that demonized the enemy, particularly the German "Huns." One film that captured the mood was titled The Beast of Berlin. Following the First World War, disillusionment set in when it became clear that the great democratic crusade had failed to bring lasting peace.
